Music superstar Jennifer Lopez announced during “American Idol” Season 14 finale that she will begin a Las Vegas headlining residency show beginning Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2016 at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. In a show created specifically for the Vegas stage, Lopez will bring her star power to the resort’s AXIS Theater.
“I’ve been preparing for this moment my entire life,” said Lopez. “The show is going to be a multifaceted high energy Jenny from the Block party, mixing all aspects of what my fans and I love – Dance, Hip Hop, Latin and Pop. It’s going to be the show I’ve always dreamt of creating.”
The nearly two-hour show will feature all her hit songs, supported by a live band and dancers; and, will feature extravagant costumes and state-of-the-art technology in sets, lighting, video and special effects. This unique show will be the only opportunity to see her perform live in North America.
“As a chart topping recording artist, world-class actress and best-selling author, Jennifer Lopez is the perfect addition to the exciting lineup at The AXIS, further solidifying Planet Hollywood as the city’s destination for premier live entertainment,” said David Hoenemeyer, regional president of Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.
“Jennifer Lopez at The AXIS is yet another highlight of Caesars Entertainment being at the forefront of Las Vegas’ entertainment and nightlife,” added Jason Gastwirth, senior vice president of marketing for Caesars Entertainment. “Jennifer’s show will be the perfect combination of a cutting-edge production spectacular and an extraordinarily fun night-out, all centered around a supremely talented international superstar.”
The show is being promoted by Caesars Entertainment, Live Nation and Fuse Network. Tickets for the first 20 performances will go on sale to the public on Saturday, May 16. Show dates have been announced for January–June 2016.
